Symptoms of this disease are manifested through sudden mood swings caused by difficulty of controlling emotions and impulses. Person’s relationship with their surroundings can be described as love-hate relationship. It simple means that in one moment such person can love and in another shifts to hating you usually because of some small misunderstanding. As a result that kind of person has short and intense episodes of depression and anxiety. Prevalent characteristic for every person affected with BPD is that they are afraid of being alone, and often are seeking for attention; sometimes they go to the extremes and harm themselves just to get noticed. Actually, everything they do in everyday life can be described as extreme, with excessive spending, risky driving, binge eating or risky sex.
